You’d miss what you love.
Later this year, all eyes turn to Paris for the most important climate talks since Copenhagen. It’s a big concern how easily climate change as an issues seems to drops from the national radar. Intermittently it can return in the wake of some extreme weather event or a headline involving ice caps and polar bears – but it is always a struggle to keep it in the foreground of public awareness. The climate lobby have concluded that while shock tactics might grab attention momentarily, they don’t lead to lasting change in attitudes. It’s all about what you love.
In Paris, in December 2015, global leaders are expected to conclude negotiations for a new deal to tackle climate change and address its impacts. As a country that has already committed to take ambitious action on climate change, Scotland has a key role to play.

For the love of country walks and Scotland’s beautiful seasons. For the love of the food on our plates. For the love of our global neighbours. For the love of the Arctic and the Great Barrier Reef. For the love of all the things we care about, we’re taking action on climate change, and we’re not alone.
We all love things that are already being affected by climate change, or will be in the future. With new leadership in the Scottish Government, we must make sure that the new First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon MSP, remains committed to tackling the defining issue of our time.
